Set TMPDIR in cvs.conf or cvspserver. We have cvs on two ports, one for
normal fast access on tmpfs (ramdisk) and one with
slower access but with a hughe tmpdir.

I added these lines to cvs.conf 

export TMPDIR
mkdir -p $TMPDIR
chmod 777 $TMPDIR
trap "rm -rf $TMPDIR" 0

The extra server sets BASETMPDIR in its cvspserver script. The trap cleans
up if cvs fails

Users run an stunnel proxy so which port is used is transparent since the
proxy remaps the port.
